Memento Mori: A Love Story from 1804
#5 in Historical Fiction
Nagsilbing ilaw ni Catherine ang liwanag ng buwan. She's looking at the moon right now here at the window of her room. She is in love. Her heart beat so fast everytime he appears in her dreams. She cries, she smiles and she longs for his warm and sad smile.
She loves him.
Yet, he kept her sedated for nothing. Yet kept her wanting to breath a meaningless air. Yet he kept her chasing the darkness.
The reason? Simply because, he's nonexistent at all.
Well he exist---but only in her mind and in 1804. And his name is--- Thomas Clemente Cordova, a handsome ghost solider whom Catherine Cruz had fallen in love with.
For he is a ghost, she shold stop loving him. For he is nonexistent at her time, she should stop hoping. But what if one day....
"Senyorita Maria..." She heared his voice, at nang ibinaba niya ang tingin mula sa buwan ay bigla siyang napasinghap nang makita niya ang makisig na sundalong iyon.
